Insurance for Daily Living

It’s been a great month out and about meeting new people, as Ashland’s LOCAL Aflac Agent.

Such a pleasure to live and work in this vibrant community, and each day brings new discoveries about the interconnected lives we live here. And it is a pleasure to connect people all over town with affordable policies that offer protection when they need it most.

I was talking with a friend the other day, about the new Health Care Exchanges. Her questions inspired me to create a three part series presenting basic facts about the new exchanges.

Important Facts About Health Care Exchanges- Part 1

  • Health care exchanges are a key provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
  • An exchange is a web portal where individuals and businesses can shop for and buy health insurance. There are basically two types:
  • Public exchanges facilitated by the state and/or federal government
  • Private exchanges facilitated by private industry stakeholders
  • Public exchanges will be open for small businesses with <100 employees, and individuals without access to affordable employer-provided health insurance.
  • Enrollment begins October 1, 2013, with coverage to go into effect January 1, 2014.

So happy to be able to support this incredible local organization! If you are not familiar with them, visit their website: They have been extremely effective in protecting our local ecosystem, fighting in the courts and in the court of public opinion. If you can support any environmental organization, make this the one. Local dollars for local jobs!

See you around town! –Sue Carney
